Are those Pelicans wasted?

This weekend, a Pelican crashed head on into a moving car in Laguna Beach, CA. No this bird wasn't clumsy or suicidal, it was just plain ole wasted. 4 Pelicans are now getting tested in a Wildlife Center because they believe that a sea algae they were eating somehow had a drunk effect. I'm not sure if this is the best excuse for humans to use when they get pulled over after a booze filled evening.

I have to admit, if I had to guess out of all the birds in the world of which ones I could actually see wasted, it'd be a Flamingo, not a Pelican. Maybe its the sunglasses they always wear? [source]
